Interesting! maybe I go hunting some day.
What about fishing Should I be worried about fish types and stuff because some of them are toxic?
I could go fishing once a weak but I need more info about eating fishes raw because I usually throw the colored fishes away and
the silver fishes I get their skin off and intestines and cook them.

Great article.

Why do you think what he says about omnivores is hysteria?

  Because so many RVAFers have eaten raw wild game, including omnivores, so that the danger is obviously overblown by that guy to an extreme.

10 minuets ago a co worker dropped a young buck that had been hit earlyer this morning of and we have it on my back pourch(I guess I have my work cut out for me today). last year I got a deer and threw away the organs, but now that I am completely paleo I will be able to enjoy the full bounty.

I got a half a lamb that just came in yesterday( a friend I do work for bought it for my Christmas gift, he is a policeman from Scotland who has a taste for lamb). So it looks like I am set for the Christmas season. I was worried about going hungry this winter because I am living on the edge of poverty, but like I told my wife there is always small blessings that seem to occur at the right time. When I am flat busted broke I will get some call out of the blue for a job, or when my kids are out of close, someone from church brings hand me downs. When my freezer is empty someone brings me a fresh piece of road kill. Without these small graces I would not be able to raise my children proper. So what if I am a stereotypical trailer park, redneck, hillbilly who eats the occasional road kill, I am that and much more and proud of it.

I was at my mothers house two days ago and out of the blue she gives me a Japanese knife set, which is just what I need to butcher this deer easily, my other knifes were cheap and don't sharpen well, but these knifes are ready to cut. My son thought the deer was a goat because he remembers when I koshered two goats last year, He told me not to cut it( he isn't too thrilled about cutting up dead animals, My two year old loves to watch me butcher, and as soon as she could stand she was helping me with cutting up various road kills and sorting the pieces, Its fun for the family.

Isn't the maggots comming from the roadkill worrysome? What about the convential pesticide/toxic forage the animals were eating in the area?

Maggots aren't worrysome.  Why would they be?  I've eaten maggots straight from deer carcasses.  They're fairly bland in taste, though not unpleasant.

Toxic forage might be a different issue.  If they live along a road where they spray the shoulders, or along railroad tracks where they spray, or among agricultural fields where they spray then the forage might be toxic and lead to bioaccumulation in the animal.  Otherwise I'm not sure what you're worrying about.

The maggot part I was worried about because I heard they're parasites and eating them they're still not digested and will burrow into your body after you eat them.

The pesticide part I understand now because pesticides come out in the animal's fats and are toxic to the eater of the animal. Organic/wild animals on safe land ftw

That's pretty silly.  Maggots are not parasites.  They're fly larvae.  They will digest just like any insect, and will not live long enough upon entering your stomach to be able to burrow into you.  They don't burrow anyway.  Their method of feeding is to spit their digestive juices on carrion, let the juices digest proteins and turn them into sugars, then lap up the sugars.

Are they toxic or dangerous or dirty to eat? They're fly larvae, I know i'd love to try bee larvae or grubs but flies...I dunno just fear, but I hope my fear of this is irrational like all others.

Also don't the animals get dirt thrown onto them or rubber burns and tire marks when they're like run over?

Sorry for the double post I cant seem to edit my posts here. But what about the flies on the roadkill too? They carry a lot of bad bacteria, and maybe even parasites and poo /when they poo on the roadkill?

There ends up being a lot of ran over rabbits and squirrels around here, but I'm kind of scared to eat them because I have no idea what they've been eating.. how do I know they haven't been digging through people's trash and eating nasty human food?  How do I know the grass they're eating from hasn't been sprayed with toxic chemicals?  How do I know that some of the people around here, who find all the rabbits as pests, didn't spray their yard with poison to kill the rabbits?  I don't live in the country, there's no forests around here, just a bunch of dry fields lined with roads that people probably throw all their trash into, plus the rodents might be polluted from all the cars that drive around here, with all the toxins I don't see how the animals could even be considered organic, and might all be contaminated with disease from pollution..
Hi, I'm 26, around 5'4" and ~124lb, no real significant health problems other than hyperventilating when running/exercising (that my doc said was because of the smog/asthma), fatigue, and really bad acne.
I'd preferably be a carnivore/very low carb, but I have had a very hard time finding grass-fed or even organic fats, organs, and marrow. I consume raw dairy, but I do not eat much vegetables.. however, I do love fruit.Trying WAI.
I live with my dad, so I also have to sneak any raw meat eating.

I'm wondering too. I'd only eat an animal from like a cut off national park, forest, desert, etc.

When I lived in a pollution-free area, the old-timers would sit on their porches at dusk and listen for the thud of a roadkilled deer, then jump in their truck and harvest the critter while it was fresh-killed. That way, it's always deer season.

Nature has an incredible capacity to heal itself. Just watch this video.

Life in the Dead Zone

Animals are pretty smart actually, you would be surprised. For instance, wild animals don't typically feast on GMO crops. Wild animals will not usually eat sprayed vegetation, sprayed vegetation is not healthy vegetation and wild animals look for healthy vegetation.

I would not eat possum or raccoon or rodent or other vermin unless I had to. They do eat human garbage.

Squirrel, groundhog, rabbit, deer, don't usually eat trash. Though I have seen a squirrel carrying a piece of pizza.

Of course you want your meat from the countryside.

The sad thing is that the whole damn world is polluted wherever you go. There isn't any clean places left. You are much better off living south of the equator, they have much less air pollution (the air masses north and south don't mix much). The cleanest places left are indeed usually the wildest. As I said before, nature has the capacity to heal itself from man made pollution. We just have to let it.
